's not at the top of my list. and he's more interested -- i mean, he thinks that the paul ryan budget really hurts education and research. and he thinks if the government doesn't invest in education and research, then we will not be internationally competitive. the republicans have a completely different view. it's great that they're talking. i think it's wonderful that they're talking but they are at opposite ends philosophically about this. >>brian: the house says okay, there is the budget. you don't like it? the senate is going to do something interesting. they are going to have a budget. excited about it? a senate republican, snorkelly ayotte on -- senator kelly ayotte on greta van susteren's show last night. >> i'm glad the democrats are finally after four years going to do a budget in the senate but basically he's rendering himself irrelevant because his is going to come after the house puts forth his budget, after the senate does his budget. where is he on this issue? you'd think he would have a fiscal blueprint for the country. i'm on the budget committee and we'll be doing it without his
in washington is the paul ryan budget. it's the same budget paul ryan and romney ran on in the election when they lost with the weaknesses that caused them to lose like taking a hatchet to health care and the generous tax cut to the rich that somehow pays for its. what you want details? you know better than that. this is groundhog day in republican politics. soon, they are going to float hillary clinton is going to replace joe biden as vice president again. all of this stuff, the welfare lie, the obama phone lie. the kill medicare budget that we don't have to explain, trust us. it's republicans trying to get traction on stuff they did not get traction on before when they were busy trying not to lose in the november elections and they lost anyway. in that election, it was actually the democrats who really did get traction on part of that issue. it was democrats who did get traction when this tape showed the republicans real argument on this stuff and all the naked behind closed doors glory. the republican's presidential campaign showing 47% of the country was accustomed to voting. romney sayi
the president obama as he responds to congressman paul ryan's plan to balance the budget in ten years. we still have not seen the president's budget. that was due last month. we remember that an extension was requested but he tells abc news that the congressman, congressman ryan, and he, have very different goals when it comes to the economy. listen to this. >> my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue. martha: stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. what do you think about that statement? he says you shouldn't just chase a balanced budget just for the sake of being able to say it is balanced? >> i think the president was spelling out his priority and his priority is not balancing the budget for the sake of balancing the budget. his priority is growth by spending more government money. that i think is his priority. and as you said, martha, that is in sharp contrast to paul ryan who is deliberately going after d
does matter. but economic growth matters too. now, i had paul ryan on the program last night with his budget. he wants corporate tax reform as a pro growth measure. today at the business roundtable with the ceos, i ran a panel. you know what they were talking about? corporate tax reform as the single best pro growth measure. are we going get that out. house? can you all put some pressure on the president who sometimes says he's in favor of corporate tax reform? that would grow the economy and help solve the debt problem. >> larry, he actually said that when he came to meet with the house republicans today because dave camp raised this issue. mr. president there are some areas where we have common ground can we move forward on that. he mentioned the corporate tax rate to which the president said i agree the corporate tax rate is too high, we should lower it, make it flatter, fairer, that's something we can agree on and he said we have about a nine month window here, envelope he thought in order to make something like that happen. dave said let's do it now. the president said we can't d
actually stop it. the house republicans are passing the paul ryan plan, and so then they'll go to conference and that where the heavy lifting will begin. >> shepard: the paul ripe plan has zero chance. >> it will pass the house and then they'll try to iron it out between the two plans. the paul ryan plan on its own would not be signed by president obama, would not pass the senate, burt it will pass the house. >> shepard: mike, thank you. meantime, something about our economy does not add up. we all know that. the latest government numbers show consumers spending grew at a strong pace. that's great because consumer spending counts for 70% of the total economic activity. here's the weird part. we're not seeing the expected comparable rise in our paychecks. we're spending more but no making more, and we're not spending more on credit cards. in fact the expert said the payroll tax hike would slow spending. it did not. so what is this? and rick suggests that more americans are taking advantage of the underground economy, earning and spending cash off the books to avoid taxes or othe

't even pay taxes. republicans are already blasting the plan. they support congressman paul ryan's budget proposal which seeks to balance a budget without any new taxes, only spending cuts. it also calls for repealing president obama's healthcare overhaul, something that democrats say, well, frankly, it can't happen. mike emanuel with the news live on capitol hill tonight. it was the democrat's turn. what did they say. >> the white house put out a statement concrete plan boost the economy and reduce deficits. today the chairman of the senate budget committee made her pitch. >> our budget reflects the pro-growth, pro-middle class agenda that the american people went to the polls of in support of in the last election. and i believe it is is a strong and responsible vision for building a foundation for growth and restoring the promise of american opportunity. >> though senator murray and white house like it not clear how senate democrats up for re-election 2014 will feel about voting on another 1 trillion-dollar tax increase. shep? >> shepard: we heard today from com ryan. he is contrasting

. there is this hope of reaching the common ground with the proposal put forth with paul ryan. that's the big question. or is this war already too far gone to find out what the white house has called a caucus of commonsense. >> we have a balanced approach to this as opposed to an uncompromising approach. now, i understand that paul's position is sort of their extremist position. hopefully by the end of the day we will be able to bridge these differences. >> i don't think patty gives a lot of room for that common ground but i think the president can get engaged, which we can find common ground on spending cuts that get us on a path towards getting our debt stabilized. >> even as they press for the president to take a more active engagement in washington's fiscal followlie fiscal follys, the -- >> the question is, he is going to go out on the campaign trail and start campaigning against us? was it a poll-driven political calculation? >> joining me is south carolina democratic congressman, james clyburn. a $1 trillion increase in tax revenue proposed by the murray plan, 4.$4.25 trillion in savin through
and you you heard some of that yesterday from representative paul ryan, the chairman of the house budget committee as he was rolling out his own budget that seeks to balance the budget over the next decade by doing away with a locality of health care reform, by streamlining the federal tax code. but president obama in an interview with abc news, says when it comes to the timeline, it's not what he has in mind. >> my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue. if we've controlled spending and we've got a smart entitlement package, potentially what have you is balanced, but not balanced on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, family who's have disabled kids. that's not the right way to balance a budget. >> so the president is sitting down meeting with republicans, hoping he can work through some of these thorny fiscal issues, hoping there can be compromise, but there is the big sticking point, how

't takinge comments likely. they approved paul ryan's blue print plan that would balance a budget in a decade with $4.6 trillion worth of cuts. the house will consider it on the floor next week. republicans say the debt needs to be handled with more urgency. >> my view is, i think he and many like him, many democrats on capitol hill for that matter don't think of this as a debt crisis because things haven't imploded yet. it's not a question of if it's a question of when. >> on wednesday patty murray has a plan that leaves the country $556 billions in shortfalls. after ten years the president will be back meeting with house republicans. >> thanks so much elizabeth. >>> it is now 17 minutes after the hour. coming up on "the rundown"" do you want to get hired? cheryl casone is here to help you get pooir hired. >> share something really caring. what she gave her classmates that probably made her one of the most popular girls in school. >> it is 21 after the hour. new information on a dead licks employings in a restaurant in kansas city last night. the tragedy came one hour after construction crew
is on capitol hill, martha. martha: it works both ways, mike. democrats clearly do not like the paul ryan house republican budget proposal. so what is their approach? >> reporter: well they are saying essentially that paul ryan is too extreme harsh. they continue calling for new tax revenue which we see in the patty murray budget blueprint. on budgetary issues, president obama talking to supporters last night sounded upbeat. >> when it comes to issues of the budget we've made progress in making sure that those at the very top are paying a greater share of what is required to run a government, fund base being research, move education forward. and so we've seen some progress. >> reporter: day three in a row, president obama coming to capitol hill today to meet with senate republicans and house democrats. democrats not liking so much some of the offers that he it making for a big deal and republicans want him to give up the idea of new taxes, martha. martha: boy, here we go. mike, thank you very much. bill: in meantime the 1st of april is the deadline for the senate to present a budget resolution
? we should make that promise, it is doable. even paul ryan whose budget did not balance the budget comes out with one that does. >> how to make it personal? joe made this case and we wrote articles about this. during the sequestration battle, obama gave his speech about the horrific sequestration and how bad it was. he was surrounded by the village people. he had a person behind him with a hard hat and make an native american. when john boehner came out he had a doomsday clock behind him, counting down the days to the sequester. he wanted to point the blame to obama. we should take credit for this. for the first time we're going to sort of cut spending at the federal level and we're going to talk a how that will help people in the long run. >> one quick thing. i ask people at cpac what they think about the second obama term and the real challenge for conservatives is you're dealing with a democratic senate and democratic white house. it is easy to propose a 10 year balanced budget like the conservatives are doing in the house but that is not going to be political reality in the sho
to hear what congressman paul ryan's reaction to this new pope is given the way the catholic church responded last year to his budget. that being said, and we can't have a reaction yet from him, what is the greatest challenge that this pope faces? >> i think he has two obvious challenges. one is to address publicly and forcefully the sexual abuse scandal in this country. and throughout the world, actually. but in this country specifically. >> because i come from britain where, of course, there were multiple scandals. >> and ireland. >> indeed. >> so he's got to address that publicly. something that neither of the past two popes really did. i think that's essential. i think the other essential thing from everything you read and everything that's been reported and everything that you hear from members of the clergy, he's got to get his hands around the management aspect of the vatican. the secrecy that shrouds so many aspects. >> its governance? >> its governance. the government nance of the bank. the vatican itself. it's been run by a handful of men for too many years with the window
. no household can run that way. >> let me challenge you on this point because here is paul ryan this week, and he laid out very clearly what he thought the job was. let me play that. >> we think we owe the country a balanced budget. we think we owe the country solutions to big problems that are plaguing our nation -- a debt crisis on the horizon, a slow-growing economy, people trapped in poverty. we're showing our answers. >> right, but the answers rely on $700 billion in savings from interest. most of the deficit reduction comes from repealing the president's health care reform, which nobody thinks is going to happen. so how seriously should this be viewed as a roadmap for a balanced budget? >> it should be very serious, because budgets -- >> you're not going to repeal obama care. >> budgets are blue prints and priorities. we lay out. we think obama care should be repealed. the majority of americans agree with us. but we also think tax reforms should happen so you can grow the economy. if you allow these debts to continue to grow, they crowd out the private sector, crowd out the opportun

presidential election, mitt romney and paul ryan both told us that there were trillions of dollars of tax breaks for very wealthy people, they proposed to eliminate them as part of tax reform where they reduced the rate. we say, let's take some of that revenue to help reduce the deficit, combined with other targeted cuts. >> be more specific for me. when you talk about tax loopholes and the very wealthy. which specific loopholes and what is very wealthy? >> sure, sure, these are, when you're in the highest tax bracket, you're in the 39% tax bracket when you get a deduction, whatever it may be for, you get 39 cents worth of deduction. whereas somebody who is in the 28% tax bracket only gets 28 cents deduction for that particular deduction. so what we're saying and this is similar to a proposal the president's put forward, is that for folks who are in that very high bracket, the 39% bracket, the value of your deductions will be limited to about 28% which is what the value of deductions is for a middle income taxpayer. >> so ultimately, the budget that you have there and i just read the litt
